This upcoming weekend is the PAX East Video Game Convention, being held in Boston, MA. The Con will take place from 3/22-3/24. JDubz and I will be in attendance, just like at New York Comic Con, and I plan to give you Glux Blog readers full coverage of the event! But to make things even more exciting, I also want to announce that I’ll be speaking in a PANEL at PAX! As a Co-Founder of StreetPass Long Island, I was invited to speak on a panel discussing StreetPass Groups. For more info on our panel, please visit the official PAX site: http://east.paxsite.com/schedule/panel/streetpass-network-bridging-gamers-within-the-community
I’ve never spoken on a panel like this before, so I’m very excited! I will be covering what my own group (SPLI) has accomplished in the 7 short months we’ve been in existence, as well as discussing some more established StreetPass groups, such as StreetPass NYC and StreetPass Arizona. The panel takes place on Friday at 12:30. All I have to do is survive the panel, and then I can run around and enjoy the Con! I was hoping to do a cosplay outfit, but unfortunately I ran out of time. I do plan to bring/wear my giant oversized Pikachu costume/footie pajamas. It’s been so cold this week, I welcome the idea of wearing a ridiculous full body fleece Pikachu costume lol!
Most likely I’ll be tweeting live from the event (assuming the building has WIFI or I can get 3G service inside, unlike how it was at NYCC’s Javits Center, where I could get no cell service whatsoever…) but not sure which account I’ll be using. To be sure you get all the updates, please follow both @gluxbox and @StreetPass_LI on Twitter. 🙂
When I get back I’ll write a big blog covering all the details so look out for that as well! If any of you guys are going to PAX, please let me know so we can StreetPass! 😀
